Gigabyte Introduces the P27K Gaming Laptop in IFA 2013

Gigabyte recently showcased a humungous gaming machine, the P27K. Visually, it is quite similar to the Asus ROG and MSI Dragon gaming notebooks. Large gaming notebooks are less than portable due to their sheer size and weight.

However, people typically use them as desktop replacements, which can be moved around much more easily than standard desktop PCs. Many have argued that only desktops can deliver finest gaming experience, but the Gigabyte P27 and other oversized gaming laptops dispel that myth rather easily. Users can choose Windows 8 or Windows 7 variants of the laptop.

It’s equipped with the 2.4-3.4GHz Intel Core i7 4700MQ processor, 17.3-inch 1080p LCD display and 4GB/8GB DDR3 RAM. One defining feature of the P27K is the Nvidia Geforce GTX 765M processor with 2GB of GDDR5 video memory. For light computing tasks, the laptop switches to the much more efficient Intel HD Graphics 4600 IGP.

The top model offers two 1TB 5400rpm hard disk drives and 256GB mSATA SSD, while the more affordable variant is equipped with only a 750GB of Hybrid HDD. Full-blown gaming sessions should take place when there’s a wall socket nearby, since the 8-cell, 5200mAh battery could deliver only less than two hours of runtime at maximum load. There’s no word when the P27K will arrive to the UK, but we could imagine that it won’t be priced less than £1000.
